Forbidden Planet is pleased to announce a special signing by Tony Lee and Dan Boulton for their astounding graphic novel Hope Falls at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Wednesday 1st June 6 – 7pm.
Released as a TPB in 2009, Hope Falls told the story of Helen Gane, a woman violated and murdered in a sleepy Nebraskan town who, twenty years later returns somehow to gain bloody vengeance on the three men who allowed this to happen – and the one man who did the deed. As the story continues and the body count rises, we learn how Helen has returned – she’s an Angel, free-falling towards Hell, and unless the Angel Michael can stop her, everything will end badly. But Michael has his own problems, for he discovers that this was far more than a simple murder, has ties all the way back to Jesus himself – and because of this, Helen won’t be able to kill her murderer after all…
Now, Markosia release a new, ‘Ultimate’ version, with the full, unedited story as well as fifteen pages of backmatter including script samples, art concepts and documentation and notes from Tony Lee and Dan Boultwood themselves.
In the last year the collaborative partnership of Tony Lee and Dan Boultwood has gone from strength to strength, with 2011 so far seeing books at Hachette, Kickstart and two series on MTV – and in June Markosia Entertainment add to this by releasing an ‘Ultimate’ edition of their 2008 award nominated series Hope Falls.
